Social impact days to have on your radar!
1. October is Blindness Awareness Month and according to the World Health Organization, there are 285 million people who are visually impaired worldwide, 39 million of whom are completely blind. Join us in supporting through a Be My Eyes volunteer experience!
2. Veterans Day is a federal holiday in the United States observed annually on November 11, honoring military veterans of the United States Armed Forces. It coincides with other holidays including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I.
3. Giving Tuesday is a global movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
